Artwork: "Bronx, Four Seasons" (Marina Tsesarskaya)

Location: Prospect Avenue (IRT White Plains Road Line)
Installation Year: 2006
Notes:

Ukranian-born artist Marina Tsesarskaya, who designed Bronx, Four Seasons for the Prospect Ave. station, said that this commission was "my first success in this country." "That probably is the most an artist would want, to have his or her art seen by thousands of people passing by every day." Source: NY Newsday

"I have created several panels representing stylized city views of the Bronx that can be seen from the Prospect Street station. The panels represent the seasons: springtime where you see blooming flowers and budding trees in front of buildings; summer, a landscape full of green trees and flowers; fall, with falling leaves and darker skies; and winter, with snow, and trees without leaves.

A series of four panels contain the same ironwork ornament design that was used in the Prospect Street station, as well as many other Bronx train stations when they were originally constructed. These panels depict stylized buildings along with irises, connecting the built environment with nature. It is intended for installation on the east side of the station so that the sunlight can be seen through the glass. The series include images of the Bronx by night along with orange lilies, known to remain in bloom at night. These panels are intended for the west side of the station.

I have chosen these images because they represent timeless views of the Bronx, the four seasons that change constantly, flowers that represent the borough's connection to nature, and the historical ironwork ornament that connects all of these images with today's Bronx train stations." -- Marina Tsesarskaya.
